By the way, anyone know what happens when you type “Illuminatti” backwards into a web browser (ittanimulli) and add .com?
Test if out for yourself: ittanimulli.com

And former DNI chair Richard Grennel of all people says there is way more to the story than meets the eye:

The Trump-appointed director of the CIA, Gina Haspel, has left her post after 36 years with the intelligence agency, announcing her resignation on Tuesday – a day ahead of the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.
In a statement posted to Twitter by the CIA, Haspel said she was “deeply proud of the work [she and the CIA] have done together,” which – while largely classified – included running one of the agency’s notorious “black site” prisons.
She was appointed director of the CIA in 2018, becoming the first woman to hold the role, and replaced Mike Pompeo, who had been promoted to Secretary of State.
While Haspel reportedly threatened to resign last month as President Donald Trump prepared to name Kash Patel, former aide to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) as her deputy, the plan was apparently cancelled at the last minute when she got wind of it. Trump had apparently grown to distrust Haspel, who had worked as London CIA station chief under former agency director John Brennan.
Despite her apparent involvement in the CIA’s torture program, Haspel narrowly squeaked by confirmation to run the US spy agency after writing in a letter to the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee that the program had “ultimately done damage” to the US’ “standing in the world.”
DOD (Esper), FBI (Wray), CIA (Haspel) THE DISMISSAL WATCH IS ON. He wanted this guy gone too! He's got full reign to fire ANY Federal Employees. Associated Press, Reuters reported this with others. Would he before Election? You bet he would. This is aweful https://t.co/pY7MLOyFN8
